Lesson Review

1.Since most digital video codecs use non-square pixels, unlike Photoshop and other still-image applications, how do you get your images to appear correctly in your sequences?
2.How do you access Photoshop texture and drop-shadow effects in FCP?
3.There are numerous causes of dropped frames in FCP. Name three.
4.If your video output looks different from what you see in the Canvas and Viewer, how do you solve that problem?
5.What’s the primary cause of audio distortion in a sequence?
6.What should you do if a clip isn’t stereo linked?
7.What are two sorts of out-of-sync audio? What causes each?
8.What can you do to avoid problems with audio if you’re using Panasonic’s AG-DVX100 camera?
9.Can FireWire drives share a chain?
10.If you don’t correctly set HDV and DV on FCP and the camera or deck, what symptom will you see?


1.Perform a reverse-squeeze operation to correct images.
2.Rasterize the layers containing the effects.
3.FCP is unable to keep up with the frame rate of your video standard (such as NTSC, PAL, HD); hardware issues; software malfunction or incompatibility; FCP settings misconfiguration; or pushing Unlimited RT and audio mixdown too far for your Mac’s capabilities.

A duplicated frame is a type of innocuous dropped frame that occurs as an anomaly. You can disregard it in most situations.

4.Use both a computer monitor and a true video monitor to view your work.
5.Improper settings at the capture, editing, or output stages of editing.
6.Apply audio filters individually to both mono audio clips linked to the video so that you don’t hear one channel without filtration.
7.Progressive and consistent. Progressively out-of-sync audio can be caused by botched settings, video recordings with nonstandard sample rates, or having captured over blank videotape and timecode breaks. Consistently out-of-sync audio is usually a result of latency caused by routing audio and video through different devices that process the signals at different speeds.
8.Tapes recorded in Panasonic’s AG-DVX100 camera require that you install a special tool found in the Extras folder of the installer CD. Note: This isn’t a problem with AG-DVX100A cameras.
9.No. FireWire drives can share a FireWire bus with a DV deck or camera, but should never share a chain.
10.If they aren’t set correctly, you’ll get “No Communication” errors.
